Breakfast Provides Benefits... Make it a Priority!

  • Higher Test Scores - research has proven that children who eat breakfast have higher math and reading scores.
  • Improved Attendance - studies show that students who eat breakfast are absent and tardy less often.
  • Fewer Trips to the School Nurse - when students eat breakfast, nurses report fewer hunger-related office visits.
  • Improved Classroom Behavior - students are better able to pay attention in class when they have eaten. Principals confirm that they see fewer discipline problems when students have eaten breakfast.
  • Better Learning - students learn best when they have eaten a good breakfast.
  • More Time on Learning - when students have eaten, they are better able to concentrate and behave in the classroom. This allows teachers to spend more time on teaching and less time on discipline.
